frost free finally

The frost free date finally arrived in Ohio! And so, we planted the garden this week. My tiny backyard is 300 square feet, and Corey and I built two 16 square foot garden beds in it. The picture below makes the yard look larger than it actually is because I took it with a wide angle lens. Technically more garden beds would fit, and maybe for fall we'll add another. Two is enough for now. We'll have tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, spinach, chard, herbs, strawberries, peas, and eggplant! p.s. Check out my new (-ish--got them a month or so ago) yellow chairs! They add a lot of life to the yard. I am thinking of painting a yellow sign for the garden to match them. Trying to come up with a name for the garden...any ideas?
